What is assistive technology? 

Assistive technology refers to any device that enables an individual to perform a task that they ordinarily would be unable to do or would need additional support to carry out.  Assistive technology promotes independence, choice, control, and enablement. 

Assistive technology equipment can be something as simple as a special spoon right through to home automation. The use of assistive technology is about enabling an individual to continue to live independently and improve their quality of life.
